USD to China Offshore Spot: secondary correction to the ranging bearish reversal

W1 price is located to be above Ichimoku cloud and above Senkou Span line which is the border of the cloud and virtual border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend on the chart.

The price was on the secondary correction since the end of January this year, and the ranging near-and-above Ichimoku cloud is started since the middle of March with the nearest support level at 6.4401. The price is ranging within the following key support/resistance levels:

  • 6.3201 support level located near and below Ichimoku cloud in the beginning of the bearish trend on the chart, and
  • 6.6508 resistance level located to be above Ichimoku cloud in the primary bullish area of the chart.

The price is crossing symmetric triangle pattern for the direction with Absolute Strength indicator estimating the correction to be continuing up to the bearish reversal.

If the price will break 6.3201 support level so the reversal of the price movement from the primary bullish to the primary bearish market condition will be started.
If the price will break 6.6508 resistance level from below to above so the primary bullish trend will be continuing.
If not so the price will be ranging between the levels.

  • Recommendation to go short: watch W1 price to break 6.3201 support level for possible sell trade

USD/CNH Intra-Day Fundamentals: Caixin Services PMI and 45 pips price movement

2016-04-06 02:45 GMT | [CNH - Caixin Services PMI]

if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for CNH in our case)

[CNH - Caixin Services PMI] = Level of a diffusion index based on surveyed purchasing managers in the services industry.

==========

"March survey data pointed to a modest rebound in overall Chinese business activity, driven by slightly stronger growth of services activity and a renewed expansion of manufacturing output. The stronger  performance of the service sector was highlighted by the Caixin China General Services Business Activity Index posting at 52.2, up from 51.2. That said, the reading continued to point to a modest rate of expansion that was slower than the series average. Meanwhile, manufacturing output returned to growth after an 11-month sequence of stagnant or reducedproduction, though the rate of growth was only marginal."

USD/CNH Technical Analysis: Trying to Extend Weekly Uptrend (based on the article)



  • "The US Dollar is attempting to build upside momentum against the Chinese Yuan in offshore trade after pushing off support guiding price higher over the past week. Positioning is inconclusive however and gains may yet prove to be corrective in the context of a larger down move from the late-March swing high."
  • "A daily close above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement opens the door for a test of the 50% level. Alternatively, a reversal below 6.4767, a level bolstered by trend line support, paves the way for a challenge of 6.4662."

Fundamental Weekly Forecasts for Dollar Index, USD/JPY, USD/CNH, NZD/USD, AUD/USD and GOLD (based on the article)

USD/CNH - "The probability of PBOC cutting RRR after the Fed’s next meeting on April 27th is high. The Fed will determine whether to raise US benchmark rates at this meeting, and the probability of the Fed increasing rates in the April meeting is 0% and for June is currently showing at 15.4% based on Fed Funds futures. The Yuan’s appreciation against the US Dollar over the past two weeks has helped to slow down the pace of capital flowing out of China."

Intra-Day Fundamentals - Reserve Bank of Australia Cash Rate: 79 pips for USD/CNH and 141 pips for AUD/USD

2016-05-03 04:30 GMT | [AUD - RBA Cash Rate]

if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for AUD in our case)

[AUD - RBA Cash Rate] = Interest rate charged on overnight loans between financial intermediaries.

==========

  • "At its meeting today, the Board decided to lower the cash rate by 25 basis points to 1.75 per cent, effective 4 May 2016. This follows information showing inflationary pressures are lower than expected."
  • "The global economy is continuing to grow, though at a slightly lower pace than earlier expected, with forecasts having been revised down a little further recently. While several advanced economies have recorded improved conditions over the past year, conditions have become more difficult for a number of emerging market economies. China's growth rate moderated further in the first part of the year, though recent actions by Chinese policymakers are supporting the near-term outlook."
  • "Commodity prices have firmed noticeably from recent lows, but this follows very substantial declines over the past couple of years. Australia's terms of trade remain much lower than they had been in recent years."
  • "Sentiment in financial markets has improved, after a period of heightened volatility early in the year. However, uncertainty about the global economic outlook and policy settings among the major jurisdictions continues. Funding costs for high-quality borrowers remain very low and, globally, monetary policy remains remarkably accommodative."
  • "Taking all these considerations into account, the Board judged that prospects for sustainable growth in the economy, with inflation returning to target over time, would be improved by easing monetary policy at this meeting."
